Classic Cowboy Coffee

- Large kettle or coffee pot
Pour desired amount of water into your kettle and bring to a boil over a campfire. Remove from heat and let it sit for 1 minute. Add coffee grounds (2 tablespoons per 1 cup of water), stir and let sit for 2 minutes. Stir again and let sit for another 2 minutes. Pour in 1/2 cup of cold water before pouring coffee into your cup.
Campfire Egg Coffee
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup pre-ground coffee (medium grind)
- 10 cups water (divided), plus 1 cup cold water
- Large sauce pan or coffee pot
Crack the egg in a bowl and reserve the egg shell. Beat the egg thoroughly. Crush the shell in a plate. Add the coffee, 1/4 cup of water and the crushed shell to the beaten egg and stir until ingredients are well-combined.
Bring about 9 cups of water to a boil in a pan/coffee pot over a campfire. Add the egg mixture. Boil for 3 mins more. Remove from heat then pour in 1 cup cold water. Allow to cool for 10 to 15 mins before pouring carefully into cups.
Drip Cone Coffee
- 1 KUJU Coffee Pourover Packet (per 1 to 1 1/2 cups of water)
Heat desired amount of water over a campfire, removing just below boiling point. This coffee packet comes with its own filter. Open the packet and get the filter from the pouch. Tear along the filter’s perforation and secure it to your mug or cup.
Carefully pour hot water over coffee grounds, letting the coffee drip into your mug. Repeat until you get 1 cup of brewed coffee.
